Promoters for Transgenic Horticultural Plants
- 1.5k Downloads
Gene engineering provides an opportunity to obtain plants with either silenced or overexpressed target genes. This approach is frequently used to study various aspects of the biochemistry, physiology, and stress tolerance of horticultural plants. Selection of appropriate promoters to govern transcription of a transgenic construct is an important step in the development of efficient genetic models. Here we present a brief overview of available literature data on the promoters investigated with the transgenic horticultural plants and some valuable information resources in this filed.
